humans? our modern human ancestors practiced ritual and religion. similar evidence for neanderthals has been elusive. then a team of archaeologists made an intriguing discovery in southern spain. their finds hint at the existence of a neanderthal ritual. inside this cave, a team led by michael walker excavated a deep shaft in which they found more than 300 bones from around ten neanderthals buried by rockfalls from the unstable ceiling. three of the neanderthals stood out. walker thinks they weren't necessarily the victims of a rockfall. if there are rocks falling on you from a natural rockfall, it would be very strange to find nobody trying to escape and one of them with the hands close to the head in almost sleeping position. narrator: although the bones of this young female are fused to the limestone rock and are hard to see, michael walker thinks her body may have been carefully arranged in a fetal position. if he's right, this was no rockfall. around 50,000 years ago, someone had intentionally buried her piling stones to protect her body. and this cave had yet mor

a studfent up the street. my question is on religion. how big of a role does religion play in the overall aspect of terrorism. how big of a r ole has it played in the u.s.'s policy on counterterrorism? >>the question is what is the role of religion either from the terrorist perspective or the combating counterterrorism perspective. from the terrorist perspective what we have mostly found is that adherence from al qaeda broadly misinterpreted and taken extremist views and perverted islam as a religion to be able to coerce and otherwise control their followers in doing things that are very much what the tenants of islam would say. we quoted a scholar and others that talked about the prohibition of killing innocent civilians. when they talk about the majority of people being killed by al qaeda are muslims contradicted the religion of islam and pointed out they were violating the tenet. so in general, helping to highlight the perversion of the religion in terms of the information we are doing has been helpful and that is what was done with the deadly vanguards report. it identified the probl
